Percutaneous coronary intervention carries the risk of coronary artery perforation, which may lead to serious adverse effects such as cardiac tamponade, myocardial infarction, and even death. We describe a patient who developed hemoptysis immediately after saphenous vein graft rupture, which is a rare complication during coronary intervention. Stenting using a covered stent, along with simultaneous administration of protamine, helped seal the vein graft perforation and stop the hemoptysis.
